Just went to see qualifying for Zolder 24hours of 2012, and i'm not amused.
The promotors promising at least 50 cars, with 31 cars on the entry list yesterday and today, we have... 21
. With also the circuit directors and the people running the championship that provides the 9 competing proto's arguing against each other, arguing against participating teams, against a lot of teams and drivers not participating and begging the crowd to actually show up.
Also permitting up to six drivers per car to get a race run is looking a bit ridiculous.
Possibly ROTR candidate though might be the big talks of the proto-manufacturers (especially Wolf and Ligier, yes these are actually 'works' efforts) of going the whole race full attack and beating the likes of WRT, Prospeed and VDS, all showing up with their regular GT3 cars, and drivers one has actually heared of before this race.
Meanwhile the touring car category has 2 participants (of which one is a silhoutte and thus not a real touring car) and 1 in the history category (added last-minute in an attempt to get more cars, forgetting that the historic championship actually runs in the same weekend)
Meanwhile at the racing track, there's also a techno/dubstep festival, meaning that you can't even hear the cars at some points of the circuit, and you will be unable to access a big part of the track in the weekend.
Seriously Zolder, WHAT IN THE BLOODY HELL IS THIS?
